**I think I may have to start calling these entries "Whoosh! There goes Monday!" Haha!
I started this on Monday very early in the morning and then I took a break and it wasn't long before I was hearing the news about the tragic bombing in Boston at the finish line of their Marathon. I didn't watch the news because I did not want to have the images burned into my mind. I can still picture so much of 9/11 and I just didn't think I could do it. I listened, with a heavy heart, to the news on the radio as I ran errands with my husband. It had both of us silent as we listened to the details. We are still praying for the city and we are still praying for our beloved country.**hello Monday Mugshots. This week's mugshot is in collaboration with A Year in the Life of an Art Journal. They give a prompt every 15th and 30th of every month. Here's today's prompt:PROMPT: What's your Story? (everyone has a story about a person, event, emotion, feeling, whatever, tell me yours)
SHOOTERS Shoot your mug with a stack of books.
BOOKERS: Focus on lots of journaling! Use stencils or masks. If you don't want your journaling to SHOW, journal THEN PAINT! Cover your journaling with your paints and embellishments!!
Well, this past Saturday they had their once a year testing to qualify for a possible position in the program for the PAID summer job. She had to swim 1000 meters in 20 minutes or less and then run 200 m., swim 400 m, and run 200 m. in 10 minutes. She passed!! It was no easy task, but she did it. She got called back for an interview that day and then today they called and told her she had been accepted. I am so proud of her! Training starts when school is out.
hello senior prom! Yes, my baby has her senior prom this Saturday. She is going with a friend who sweetly asked her by spelling out "PROM?" with rose petals at school. Can't believe it's already here. Getting kind of weepy. My baby girl.
hello etsy orders. I am so thankful for them, but what's up with them all coming in at one time? lol That's alright. I will take it!! Lot's to do still. Mailboxes with affirmation cards, banners, journals and mini journals...
